Time running out to recognise innovators
Entries into a competition to recognise rural Victoria’s best innovators close on Friday.
The Community Innovators Competition is being held by Rural Councils Victoria and is aimed at highlighting the special and creative work that rural Victorians are already doing in their communities.
RCV Chairman Cr Rob Gersch said that the competition had four categories – road safety, library and literacy services, fire safety and saving energy.
“Whether it’s a librarian trying new ways to reach communities in remote locations, a school principal creating a smarter way to teach students about road safety, or a farmer developing a better system for fire prevention, we want to hear about what you’re doing to work smarter in rural Victoria,” Cr Gersch said.
“The winner in each category will win $1000 to be spent on expanding the project or program for which they were successful.
People wishing to nominate themselves or someone they think is worth can download the entry form at ruralcouncilsvictoria.org.au/competitions
Entrants must be a resident or employee of one of Rural Councils Victoria member councils, a list of which is available on the website.
